The WRE will be an active member of the Water Resources Program Team, designing and delivering in-service training on a variety of identified topics.

  • The WRE will be responsible for site assessments, engineering designs, construction supervision, field monitoring, data analysis, and reporting for 3 to 5 demonstration projects annually (25%).


  • Work with the Water Resources Program Team Leader to design and deliver innovative training of interest to Extension agents on multiple Program Teams, including Forestry and Natural Resources and Horticulture (10%)


  • Develop educational materials and participate in field tours, workshops, and other educational activities as identified (5%).


  • Work cooperatively amongst an energetic and professional team to create and deliver information and services focused on the protection of the state’s water resources, so as to achieve regional and national recognition for Clemson University, the Center for Watershed Excellence and Clemson Extension (5%).




The WRE Extension Associate position requires a Masters degree in an engineering discipline plus a minimum of 2 years of environmental or stormwater engineering experience. Excellent oral and written communication skills are essential. Demonstrated skills with teaching, surveying, CAD, construction supervision, and field monitoring are required. The Extension Associate must be able to work effectively with engineers, scientists, public officials, regulatory authorities, citizen groups, and construction contractors. Experience in extension programming, training, or related area is also preferred. Ability to work and make decisions independently is critical.
